Career Fairs Frequintly Asked questions
Glossary of Commonly Used Terms
Profile: Your profile contains your contact information (email, phone), as well as basic details about your educational background (major, graduation date, etc.). You will also be able to upload a resume to share with employers within your profile. To book appointments to meet with employers at the career fair, you must create a profile in the Career Fair Plus App.
Recruiter: Individual representing a specific company at the virtual fair.
Appointments: Appointments are times you reserve for employer meetings on the day of the fair. These meetings are typically completed via video, but could also include phone meetings. For example, a 10:00 appointment with Company XYZ means you will speak with a recruiter from Company XYZ at that time. Appointments are typically 10 minutes long, but could be longer or shorter in length.
Schedules: Schedules are times during which an employer is available for a meeting on the day of the fair. For example, an employer may be available at 10:15, 11:30, and 1:15 for an appointment.
Meetings: A meeting is a set time to speak with an employer. These meetings are typically completed via video, but could also include phone meetings. This can also be referred to as a time slot. Keep in mind that meetings are quick conversations similar to what might happen at an in-person career fair, not an employment interview.
